6mm-Minis is Maksim-Smelchak's blog to discuss gaming, miniatures, books, movies, food, Israel, Judaism, life in general and other funny crud. My favorite scale of miniatures is 6mm, which is also called 1/285 or 1/300 scale. I enjoy many different kinds of games including ancients, Napoleonics, WWI, WWII, the Arab-Israeli conflict, Car Wars AKA Autoduel (a sort of crash'n'derby automobile combat game), 6mm Godzilla AKA Kaiju games, and science fiction games. I'm open to everything though!

MINI WARGAMING: "Proud Wargaming Dad Moments!" (4 November 2007)

TOP: Some things just do a Wargaming Dad proud!
Hi All,

I read several wargaming forums and I read this the other day ago and it made me smile. Hope it gives you naches (warm feelings of pride) too:

I would like to share a special Wargaming Dad moment with you guys.

I have been trying to get hold of some if the great WW1 Wings of War minis (1/144 scale) but here in Oz, they are rather scarce. Then along comes a friend in the States who buys some from his local shop and ships them to me in Australia.

When they arrived this week my six-year-old son helped me open the box, pulled one out one and said:

"This looks just like Biggle's Sopwith Camel in France"

And indeed he was holding a Sopwith Camel!

What a proud moment for a Wargaming Dad!

My buddy Tas in Australia is a great guy and talk of his family always brings a smile to my face. I really love our hobby. I almost wish I had children myself. Maybe someday...

Have a great Sunday!

    Hello Maksim,

    I read your previous entry about the undead Romans (and your plans for your whole undead army) with interest. I checked out all your links too because I have also been curious about the Zvesda fantasy stuff.
    My local model shop can get Zvesda by special order but I have never been sufficiently moved to order any yet.
    Tas is training his boy very well..my nine year old does not even recognise a Sherman tank yet...maybe I have been negligent...
